News--AAAI (Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence) Undergraduate Consortium

At the 2021 and 2022 AAAI Conferences, I co-Chaired the Undergraduate Consortium, an opportunity for a selected group of undergraduate scholars to meet peers and professionals, and to receive mentorship and resources to help in pursuing a career in AI research. You can check out the programs of each year's Undergraduate Consortium (2021, 2022) and a YouTube playlist of our scholars' videos describing their research!

News--WIREs Cognitive Science Journal

I have recently joined the Editorial Board of WIREs (Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews) as the Computer Science and Robotics Editor for WIREs Cognitive Science. I'm very excited to be part of a group that promotes the communication of important Computer Science and Robotics research in a forum for the Cognitive Science community!

News--E-Book: Evolvability, Environments, Embodiment & Emergence in Robotics

Along with colleagues John Long (Vassar College) and Stéphane Doncieux (Université Pierre et Marie Curie), I have co-edited a Frontiers Research Topic called Evolvability, Environments, Embodiment & Emergence in Robotics.

In November 2018, this research topic was published as an e-book, free to download! I hope anyone interested in this fascinating interdisciplinary area will check it out!

Non-academic stuff

Music is one of my most important non-academic interests. I have written about music (album reviews and features), broadcast as a jazz DJ (a weekly commercial radio show), and played in a few rock bands that successfully made it out of the garage.
